    how to install to HDD within livecd

    i have been using the livecd on my laptop and i really like it. Recently i got another laptop, and i want to dual boot with windows vista. Is it possible to install knoppix to this laptop, using the live cd? i have the livd cd on a 4g usb stick. Thanks.

    HI cfli688c1
    -1st OF ALL SAVE YOUR HD
    1) - Knoppix is not REALLY intended for "hd-install" according to Mr KNOPPER himself !
    2) - I am not very experimented
    3) - Windows is very well protected and does not accept always for a LONG TIME the "multiboot"
    option
    (at least for my system "XP professional)!).
    4) - I suppose it will depend probably on your version of grub.

    PROPOSITION:
    1- Find the knoppix (Linux) name of your boot system Partition by typing
    the command:
    fdisk -l
    the good partition will appear with an "*" (and the NTFS file System mark)
    in the form (hda,?) or (sd?,?)
    2- Call the console
    3- Put yourself as a root user by typing (in my system) the command:
    su
    4 - Call Grub ( which is intended for Linux_multiboot_install) by typing the command:
    grub
    you will see a line as this one:
    grub> ......
    ( My Comment : this appeas so for all the remaining time)
    5 - Type the command:
    root=(
    COMPLETED with TAB repeatedly "by letters" if needed until you find the GOOD PARTITION corresponding to YOUR situation!
    6- Grub will complete and PROPOSE you some partitions as good candidates for accepting
    a (multi)-boot system. You must retreive the result of the (step 1-) .
    7- (after the line grub>) type the following command for YOUR GOOD PARTITION
    setup(*,**)
    * and ** as they appear in the step(s) 6- (and 1- ).).
    8- type the command:
    quit

    That's all!!
    BUT BE CARE TO RESPECT THESE INSTRUCTIONS. "TAB" WILL HELP YOU AS IN THE STEP 5

    REBOOT YOUR SYSTEM WHICH YOU HAVE PRE-SAVED NATURALLY !!!!

    hi
    I have forgottent the step (6bis) before the step (7-)
    type the command:
    root(*,**) for YOUR GOOD (disk, partition)
    This will be the partition where you want install the grub-multiboot
    bye
